Wheel Alignment Maintenance - 2009 Ford Expedition

Why Is Ford Expedition Alignment Important?

An alignment involves making adjustments to your Ford Expedition's suspension system, the connection between the vehicle and the wheels. In an alignment service, your tire angles are adjusted according to measurements recommended by Ford. Why? So that your tires can make contact with the road at the best possible angle. When the system is aligned to Ford specifications, all of your tires experience equal pressure. This gives you several benefits: your car handles better, your tires wear more evenly and last longer, and your suspension system experiences less strain. When you bring in your 2009 Ford Expedition, we’ll perform an alignment check first. Then, we’ll adjust the angles as needed until they match recommended measurements from Ford. We’ll make sure your tire pressure is at the correct level, too.

When to Get Ford Expedition Wheel Alignment

To keep your suspension in good shape, have your Ford Expedition alignment checked about every 6,000 miles. Believe it or not, even one misaligned wheel can reduce fuel efficiency, and could lead to premature wear and tear on your vehicle if left unaddressed. You may also want to stop by for an alignment check if you notice any of the following with your 2009 Ford Expedition: pulling to the left or right, rapid or uneven wear on one or more tires, a steering wheel that sits crooked while driving straight, or noticeable squealing noises from your tires. You won’t see any warning lights on your Expedition dashboard if your wheel alignment is off, so pay close attention to these symptoms.
